    Possibly. There were a couple of really bad ones.

    No, because he was doing that for our sake. He didn't want to damage Sex's face. It's not like any of us jack off to the back of his head (or do we?).

    We should be thanking him, not criticizing him.

    No, because the fight was already over.

    Fined maybe, but it didn't alter the outcome of the fight so no DQ or NC.

    It all worked out after Fedor cheated against Lindland.

    The referees made the right calls. Obviously the guy who should have won, won.

    I am torn because Vitor was winning anyways, so no, but some of those are so blatant and dangerous, so yes. There should have been some punishment.

    You have to be really really blatant for a ref to DQ you for back of the head shots.

    (Exception being Yamasaki)

    What fight is this? What did the ref do? Some of those that happen are forgivable because they're in the midst of a chaotic finish and their opponents are rolling all over trying to get away but that is incredibly blatant

    The refs really don't enforce it very often though

    The only back of the head shot was the one hammer fist after Franklin was already out. Never had a problem with it and I was rooting for Rich when that happened.

    Yeah, that definitely makes my list of cheap shit every fighter should do because you will almost certainly not get popped for it.

    He landed 1 shot to the back of the head and Franklin was already out so it didn't really matter.

    Kiichi Kunimoto vs Luiz Jorge Dutra Jr. from the Tarec/Hyun Gyu Lim card. The funny thing is Luiz actually celebrated, excessively at that, before they explained to him he was getting DQ'd for blatant back of the head shots.
